Courtney and Dustin are high school sweethearts (let’s hear it because I know we’re all thinking it — ‘Awww!’) If you’ve ever known someone with an absolutely contagious smile who has the ability to light up a room when they walk into it, that would be Courtney. One of the first things she said to me when I commented on it was, “My smile and eyes are so crazy, I’ve been asked so many times in the past if I’m Asian!” No, my dear, just 100% adorable.
As for Dustin, one glance at him while he’s with Courtney and you can tell that he’s totally, completely, helplessly, head-over-heels in love with her. As cliche, as that may sound, it’s nothing short of the truth. For instance, during our session, I asked them to do something crazy and climb a tree (I ask my clients to do absurd things quite often – anything for the shot, right?!) Courtney, being her adorable self, was the brave one and was the first to begin climbing. Little more than five steps up the tree and she comes rolling back down it as if she’s transformed into Sonic the Hedgehog. After realizing she was 100% okay and how Sonic himself couldn’t have taken a more graceful of a fall, the two of us burst into laughter. Dustin, well…. he needed a little more convincing. You could see the concern in his eyes and after about ten minutes of asking Courtney if she was okay, scolding her that she shouldn’t have been so daring, and specifically asking if certain body parts were still in tact, he was finally convinced that his fiance was in good shape :) It was the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen.
Courtney and Dustin, y’all are so awesome. Please know that I am counting down the days until your wedding.
…and please take a guess as to where this adorable couples goes to college :)
